    Charity Golf Tournament

    The season is almost over for New England as the leaves are falling and the frost is forming. Take a break from mid-terms and the normal social outings and head to the golf course. As an assignment for a sports marketing class, some seniors have put together a charity golf tournament that will be taking place next weekend, Saturday, Nov. 6 at approximately noon. Button Hole, a 9-hole, par 3 course (not too challenging), will be closed for this event and is only 10 minutes from PC. For $20, you get a round of golf, free club rentals (if needed), access to the driving range, a t-shirt, food, and entertainment. There will be a discounted price for those who would rather not play golf but still want to go to enjoy the entertainment and watch their roommates show off their golf skills.

    Previewing the NBA: Deals and Decisions

    The question I ask you all today is, are you a nail biter?

    Remember that question as you read the words of sportscaster Jim Gray:

    You’ve had everybody else biting their nails. So I guess it’s time for them to stop chewing. The answer to the question everybody wants to know: LeBron, what’s your decision?”

    Volleyball Splits with UNH

    Leading into this weekend, the Women’s Volleyball Team was at a crossroads in their season. They were slipping below .500, they were shuffling lineups, and they were in the midst of a five game losing streak. Facing this dilemma, the Friars settled on trekking forward in search of success, but the weekend was met with mixed results. While Friday brought jubilation as the Friars swept America East rival UNH at home, it was quickly followed by frustration for PC, as they fell at UNH in straight sets.
